. so huge. and to compare it to katrina, katrina lost more lives. we lost too many lives, but not close to katrina. but in other ways it's much more devastating than katrina. right now in new york 305,000 homes are seriously damaged or gone. kirsten showed the pictures of some of them that are just gone by fire because the water systems failed, and the wind -- then the electrical systems got shorted; fire, wind. and the, so 305,000 homes seriously damaged or gone. just in new york up to now, there are going to be more that we'll learn about because the flooding is still there in lots of the basements. these are low-lying houses. there were 214,000 total homes gone in katrina of the same level of damage. businesses, 265,000 -- this is just new york. bob will talk about, and frank talked about new jersey which has similar levels of damage. in katrina 18,000 businesses. because of the density of the population, it is a much greater economic impact on our region, of course, and on the nation. than otherwise. so despite all this pain we can't entirely fault those who came before us for build

city. however if you go back seven years to hurricane katrina the news then about that storm was how president bush and fema and michael brown and everybody failed. you never heard about mayor nagan and governor belong could he. now the situation is reversed and it's bloomberg taking the blame for the storm and not doing better for it as opposed to president obama. if this were bush right now you'd be seeing a split screen of bush campaigning, and then people being miserable in their wrecked houses back home in queens. jon: what about that? we heard from david lee miller earlier today, a hispanic woman getting up there in years complaining how absolutely miserable it is where she's live. why should that not be president obama's fault as it was president bush's fault? >> katrina was a much larger national issue than with all due respect to queens. jon: why? >> because katrina was -- the magnitude of katrina in terms of what it represented nationally was not specific to a neighborhood in new york. overall the reaction to sandy has been -- jon: so the president is not -- i mean he's the

're guaranteeing they will be in effect of any need them. we saw that in connection with katrina and normans, and how poorly fema performed. i think it is a striking contrast that now you have a very vociferous republicann governor of new jersey who is saying, fema was there right away and was released on its game. so it is possible for the government to perform poorly impossible for them to perform well. i think the political drama was all played out in new jersey was well worth considering. >> paul barrett, i want to move to the issue of gun control. mayor bloomberg also raise the issue of and control and why he is supporting president obama. he said 2008, obama ran as a pragmatic but-let me see. he ran as a pragmatic problem solver but as president he devoted little time and effort to developing a system in a coalition of centrist, which doomed of repress on illegal guns, tax reform, job creation and deficit reduction. in fact, interestingly, he is somewhat critical of president obama on gun-control and you are very well positioned to talk about this issue, as your last book is called "gl
ask the folks who still have no power. at this point katrina, most folks that had their power restored. neil: that's a very good point. the idea that this campaign by governor romney has come this close . great second-guessing, but the real emphasis will have to be for the republican party irrespective of whether governor romney windsor knot, helen the world that is corrupt the opportunity that was theirs for the u.s. senate? how is it that the republican party seems so at a touch with the american people that they could lose all of these opportunities and actually be dominated rhetorically and in the language and messaging of campaigning in 2012. does what happened. neil: missouri right now goes for mitt romney, leading by two points. i don't think that's a shock. again, pick up ten electoral votes. another alert. power restored. >> excellent. congratulations. let's hope that the rest of new jersey -- neil: lou has a nuclear power generator powering his compound. >> i want to give credit to sussex rural electric who delivers on their problems. >> something happened. let's go to bed ch

daniel christman used katrina as an example of how extreme weather can cause negative operational impacts to our military. in response to katrina the national guard mobilized 58,000 national guard members to the relief effort at the same time that 79,000 guard members were deployed fighting the war on terrorism. the generals pointed out that although louisiana's physical infrastructure did not hold, our national guard did hold. but the limits of even our exceptional national guard will be tested by these changes in extreme weather. and it is imperative that we prepare our emergency management and responders for a new normal of new extremes. climate change will also create new strategic challenges. climate events such as droughts and heat waves, floods and storms exacerbate political and military tensions in areas around the world with fragile governments and instability. this can result in violent conflict and in refugee problems. it is not just the shock of extreme weather that portends danger. as the temperature of the air and ocean steadily rises the amount of moisture in the atmospher

toward paying claims for consumers, toward servicing the debt that resulted from hurricane katrina. the private insurance carriers only get an expense reimbursement. they essentially get a stipend from the federal program in order to run that program. they don't really take part. they don't earn premiums and those premiums don't go into their private coffers. they just get an expense reimbursement. so the concept that the right your own companies or that the insurance industry as whole is making a lot of money from the program, it's not accurate. my members are trusted choice agents. they are doing this, they are selling flood insurance billy as a benefit for consumers, in order to make sure consumers are protected from this dangerous peril. they're not making hand over fist money selling policies. it's just not accurate. host: john prible, because of these hurricanes that we looked at earlier in 2004 and sandy, will those rates go up overall? guest: not as a result of this particular storm. what fema is currently doing and have been for about 10 years, they're undergoing a massive
